Quickset FINAL VTF-3 HO
Quick Set-Up Guide for
Dolby Digital Receiver Systems
VTF-15H Amplifier Panel
Low Level / Sub Inputs:
High Level from Amplifier:
1. Setting-up the receiver.
2. Placing the subwoofer.
On the receiver, go to the SPEAKER SET-UP or
BASS MANAGEMENT menu and set the subwoofer to ON or YES. If possible, set all the
speakers to SMALL. Turn the receiver off.
There is no need to put the subwoofer between
the left and right speakers. Put it in a corner or
near the listening seats if possible.
If your controller does not have low level outputs (SUBWOOFER, LFE, or full-range preamp outputs), use these
color coded connectors. Run speaker wire from your
amplifier or receiver’s speaker terminals to tap the signal.
For Dolby Digital systems, connect the SUBWOOFER
OUT to either of these inputs. For stereo-only systems,
you may connect the left and right channels to both
inputs as explained in the manual.
Volume Control:
Set this to the 9 o’clock position to start. Use the subwoofer level control on your controller to fine tune. If
your controller does not have a subwoofer level control,
then adjust this to get the desired bass level.
Phase Switch:
Depending on your system and room, the bass in the
crossover region may be smoother if you reverse the
phase of the subwoofer. See Setting the Phase section
of the manual.
Power Indicator:
When the subwoofer is ON, this LED light will be green.
When the subwoofer is in STANDBY mode, it can be
red or green. When the subwoofer is OFF, it will be red.
Power / Auto-on Switch:
3. Hooking up the subwoofer.
4. Adjusting the volume level.
Run an interconnect cable from the receiver’s
SUBWOOFER or LFE output to either of the
subwoofer’s LOW LEVEL INPUTS. This cable
is available at most electronics and audio stores.
Plug the power cord into the subwoofer, and turn
the power switch to “Auto.”
Set the volume knob on the subwoofer to the 9
o’clock position to start. Do fine tuning using the
subwoofer level control on your receiver. Adjust
to get the desired amount of bass. For more rigorous level setting, consult the manual.
When in the ON position, the subwoofer will stay on at
all times. In AUTO-ON mode, material with bass will
quickly turn the subwoofer on. After around 15 - 30
minutes of inactivity, the subwoofer will automatically
go into STANDBY mode.
Crossover Defeat Switch:
If you are using a SUBWOOFER or LFE output, you can
disengage the crossover by switching it to OUT. The
crossover should be switched to IN when using high
level inputs or two channel low level inputs.
Crossover Frequency Control:
This low-pass crossover controls what frequencies are
handled by the subwoofer when Crossover is IN.
Q Control:
This adjusts the bass tightness. The lower the Q, the
tighter the bass. Setting to a lower Q also increases
headroom, especially in the low bass.
Operating Mode Switch:
Power Input:
Removable Fuse Holder:
Flip this switch and add or remove a foam port plug(s)
to operate the subwoofer in one of five different operating modes, including ported and sealed hybrid modes.
See Variable Tuning section of the manual.
This is an IEC socket. Connect the supplied power
cord here. If your country
uses a different power cord,
get one locally.
By pushing in and turning counterclockwise, you can remove and
replace the fuse. Use only the correctly rated 5 x 20 mm replacement
slow-blow fuses.
For 100 -120V line voltage, set to 120V. For 220 -250V
line voltage, set to 240V. Make sure to change the fuse
to the correctly rated value when changing the voltage.
